50 Cent Live
The rapper failed to impress at the 02 Arena last weekend...
Since the days of Tupac versus Notorious B.I.G., or Jay-Z versus Nas, disputes between rappers have been a sure fire way to generate lots of headlines and the media attention didn't disappoint when 50 Cent challenged Kanye West.
It was big news on the rap scene two months ago when Kanye West and Curtis 50 Cent Jackson both released new albums on the same day" And after losing the well publicized battle and snubbing both the MOBO and Vodafone awards a lot was riding on 50s only London date of the European Curtis album tour.
Sadly 50 Cent disappointed with a frankly lacklustre showing. Sure all the hit singles- Candy Shop, Just A Lil Bit and P.I.M.P- were all played.
Though Ayo Technology and Many Men were the definite high points of the night 50 lacked any real hunger during the 90 minute offering and further more exhibited dismal stage presence which left the crowd bored in parts.
After a quick mock to Kanye West saying This aint no Kanye West S*it, 50 ended the show by pulling his jeans down and exhibiting his rear end to the audience.
If this show was anything to go by; 50 Cent doesnt seem hungry to evolve and is comfortable living in a state of complacency, just doing what he needs to do to get by without putting any real effort in.
